Rating: 93 Retail Price ($) $70 Drink Date 2016 – 2026 Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr. Issue Date 30th Dec 2016 Source 228, The Wine Advocate The 2013 Proprietary Red 19 Block Mountain Cuvée is a blend of 61% Malbec, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Syrah, all from the estate on Mt. Veeder. This blend has worked well, exhibiting an opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of incense, camphor, blackberry, licorice and a touch of espresso. It is full-bodied and concentrated, but with supple tannins and a roundness and juiciness ? even for a 2013. This should age nicely for at least 10 or more years. As I indicated last year, the Hess Collection winery up on Mt. Veeder is profiting from a complete makeover and producing better and better wines as well as more special cuvées. This was a winery that burst on the scene in the mid-1980s with some terrific wines and then became moribund. That?s all changing now, as the recent releases strongly evidence.
